Furusato Matsuri

Time Out says

The annual Furusato Matsuri (Hometown Festival) is a chance for the residents of Japan’s other prefectures to dazzle Tokyoites with their regions’ unique cultures – and, of course, their food. There’ll be stalls hawking everything from sake to seafood, with special sections devoted to fancy desserts and donburi rice bowls. The latter is part of a competition, where regional donburi restaurants try to outdo each other – think rosy seabass rice bowls from Shimane prefecture or Tokachi Gyutoro raw beef bowls from Hokkaido, all for a mere ¥500. Stay until the evening to sample different types of sake and beer from a selection of over 100 varieties. Need a break from all the eating and drinking? Then sit back and watch a showcase of highlights from up to 20 popular regional festivals from Aomori’s Nebuta Matsuri to Akita’s Kanto Matsuri.
